The City Of Hackensack


The Health Department has been providing public health services to the residents of Hackensack since the 1900s. The goal that we strive for is to coordinate and assure the preservation, protection, and promotion of good health, well-being, and quality of life for all the residents in our community. We work towards this goal by:

  • Monitoring health status to identify community health problems.
  • Diagnosing and investigating health problems and health hazards in the community. 
  • Informing, educating, and empowering people about health issues. 
  • Mobilizing community partnerships to identify and solve health problems. 
  • Developing policies and plans that support individual and community health efforts. 
  • Enforcing laws and regulations that protect health and ensure safety.
  • Linking people to needed personal health services and assuring preventative care when otherwise unavailable.
  • Assuring a competent public health workforce.
  • Evaluating effectiveness, accessibility, and quality of personal and population-based health services.
  • Examining research for new insights and innovative solutions to health problems.
